Floyd-based fiddler Earl White, also known as the co-founder of Big Indian Farm Artisan Bakery, is rooted in the practice, teaching, and sustaining of American string band traditions. Fiddlin’ Earl White has been a prominent figure in the Old Time music and dance community for more than 40 years. He’s one of the few African-Americans playing and perpetuating the music that was once an essential part of black culture and black communities across the U.S. Leader of the Earl White Stringband, White is as much a convener, connector, and teacher as an entertainer.
White comes to us amidst Big Indian’s annual four-day Fiddle Jam for a virtual conversation to share music and reflect on a lifetime of deep commitment to keep traditions alive.
